Good Children Gallery is pleased to announce Crowning Glory, a group show part of P.3+, the satellite branch of the Prospect.3 Biennial. Please read more about Prospect here. Crowing Glory focuses on the psycho-geography of Good Children's space— exploring past-lives of the gallery through notions of memory, history, and amnesia. Member artists will respond to the topic with newly produced work stemming from their individual practices.
The Damned Dam, performance by Lala Raščić
Saturday December 13, 6 pm
40 minute duration
The Damned Dam is performance version of Lala Raščić video work from 2010. As the project developed, performance in the English language emerged taking form as a loosely rhymed epic poem. The Damned Dam is based on a true story is a work that opens up numerous issues, such as the iconography of disaster, the relationship between capitalism and corruption, between cause and effect, hope for a brighter future, and the consequential relationship between the past and the future, emancipation and justice, the region on its margins, dam–border, Bosnian epic poetry–epic of the border, and the dam as its metaphor.
Artist Talk by Manon Bellet
Tuesday, December 16, 6 pm
Manon Bellet, a French artist living and working in Berlin, will talk about her work and artistic practice. In her monumental installations, serial works, and videos, Bellet displays a particular affection for paper. Opaque or transparent, crumpled or torn, gradually disintegrated by re or uttering in the passing air, the page moves and transforms itself in the artist’s hands as she sets out to explore its potential new lives. Whether light or opalescent, her papers are concerned with the fragility of existence, with memory and ruin.
